“Many sociologists and mental health professionals say that those who
believe the official version without any questioning are the ones
suffering from psychological defense mechanisms.” — Washington’s Blog, “Former Marine Indefinitely Detained In Psychiatric Ward Over 9/11 Facebook Posts.”
“They call me mad, while they are all mad themselves.” — Plautus.
“Insanity is relative. It depends on who has who locked in what cage.” — Ray Bradbury.
When did telling the truth become a sign of madness in America? Was it on September 12, 2001? How about November 23, 1963?
Who can remember now? It seems like forever ago.
The ghost of legendary American poet and heroic patriot Ezra Pound would argue it happened before the 1950s.
Pound was mislabeled “insane” for his political speech by the fascist U.S. government after the conclusion of WWII and subsequently thrown in the mental prison called, “St. Elizabeths Hospital.” Ironically, this same insane asylum now houses the Department of Homeland Security.
Pound was called crazy because he made unpopular statements about the U.S. government and its drive to war. A few generations later, the U.S. government is still using the same totalitarian tactic to silence dissent. It is a convenient way to bypass the law. As this article from 1997 about the legal and political use of mental health hospitals states, “Most importantly, the ‘mentally abnormal’ person is denied due process of law.”
By the way, equating dissent with mental illness is not new. Plus, the Chinese government does it too, so it is hardly an American phenomenon. But there is no doubt that the U.S. government is the global leader of falsely using the label of “mental illness” against dissidents to control the population and kill free speech.
In America, madness is taken to another level. Government bosses and corporate fat cats are running wild with the “mentall illness” label. They target the individual when he/she is still in the womb. Here is an excerpt from Evelyn Pringle’s article called, “The Psychiatric Drugging of Infants and Toddlers”:
“The United States has become the psychiatric drugging capital of the world for kids with children being medicated at a younger and younger age. Medicaid records in some states show infants less than a year old on drugs for mental disorders.”
A new victim of the totalitarian tactic of utilizing the discourse of mental illness to crush democratic opinion is ex-Marine Brandon Raub, who is currently detained in a psychiatric facility because he posted about 9/11 truth on his Facebook page.
I am not defending the violent nature of his statements, but the integrity of 9/11 truth and the right to tell unpopular truths. Raub took a brave stance for the victims of 9/11 and for his beloved country. The totalitarian freaks in power only know one way to silent him: dismiss him as crazy.
If it is crazy to love your country, love individual freedom, and love the truth then are we not all guilty of being crazy? If loving your country and loving humanity is a mentally ill act then put us all in a psych ward.
Hundreds of millions of people worldwide do not believe in the official conspiracy theory about the 9/11 events. Are we all crazy?
This is absurd.
I’ve got an idea. The totalitarian freaks should put the 9/11 truth-tellers in St. Elizabeths Hospital and clear the space by putting the 2,527 DHS employees who have been convicted of crimes in jail. It’s a win-win from a cost-benefit perspective.
Seriously, though, you know there is a systemic undermining of the individual’s well-being by the mental health profession and the government when babies are being labeled mentally ill and drugged. There is clearly an anti-human agenda at work here. And the crazy thing about it is that if you point out this crazy situation you are called crazy and either drugged or jailed.
For collective sanity to prevail, we must say no to the totalitarian use of psychiatric drugs and psychiatric prisons for social and political control.
